No sentiment card, Something inbetween

The elegant card.

This is the third card in the card making kit series. Since I had to use the sketch, there was little scope for adding any dimension apart from what was provided. Hence it has plenty of pretty flowers and an intricate polka dotted butterfly.

I know, its very unlike me to keep a plain background but I prefered to keep a plain backdrop and fill color and design with the DP provided rather than keep a designed background and plain colored flowers and swirls.  All said and done, I think, this card is the highlight of the series.

Hope to read your thoughts on this card.

Inspirational card

Once is Enough !

Love these sentiments. I have waited for sometime now, to get an apt sketch to highlight this sentiment and voila,  Sweet Sunday came up with such a lovely sketch. I used bright cheerful colored stripes and a purple ribbon with two tiny bows to highlight the ribbon or it would be lost in the colored stripes. The accents on the right are woodsies. Gosh Love those !

Here’s my card : such inspirational sentiments, isnt it ?  Thats what I like about card making, not only is it a way of being able to express creativity, but its a beautiful channel of bringing two people closer. We share sentiments, we speak volumes with may be just one sentence or two but it brings us closer, It helps in making up relationships and binding ones that were wavering off.  Isnt that just what cards are supposed to do.

Believe it or not ! I still have cards from my childhood !! They are special. Some for the sentiments shared by the giver and some for the occasions they shared. Some although arent all that good, I have framed them for their actual worth, which is priceless ! They are memories, which no amount of money can bring back.

Ok ok ok so I got all senti !! Remember I told you ” I am that emotional fool! ” So anyways where were we ??? Oh yeah, my card !!!!

Challenges, Get Well soon ~ Card

Get well soon with flowers.

The sketch is so simple yet you can actually put in an entire drama stage with the only two images there. Its really very versatile.

I decided to use the image of ‘get well soon’ with a very pastel pink and purple. I meant to use some cheerful colored flowers and a few shimmering butterflies, but then the flowerpot idea just sprung up and voila !

My card is one, I have been wanting to do for a very long time. I feel in all honesty, I have tried to keep the look and ‘feel’ of this card very ‘formal and male oriented’ Dont you agree?

little girl’s love to ICS

 

This card is a truly “girlie” card, one that goes from a female to another female. Cant see it happening any other way. But the message is very cute. With loads of love. The little girl in a pinafore holding a basket full of flowers was real fun to do. Using pink and purple together was a first time for me but It turned out good eventually .  The rest was simply paper piecing. Leaving this card for card challenge at : Inspirational Card Sketches.
